Jefferson is a 6’0”, 190 lb CB/WR at Destrehan High School, the same school attended by his older brother. He raised a few eyebrows by committing to LSU considering the negativity Jordan endured during his time on the team. Jordan was arrested last year for his involvement in a bar fight, and subsequently suspended from the team for four games during the investigation. To end his legacy at LSU he went 11/17 for 53 yards and one INT in the BCS Championship game.
The four star recruit said, “It was pretty much LSU all along. It’s where I feel most comfortable. I really don’t pay attention to the negative things. I stay positive and play football. I play for my team and play for the coaches that coach me. I don’t play for anybody else.”
To anyone worried about the family ties, this is definitely a good recruit for the Tigers. As a WR he’s actually playing the position many believed his brother should have been moved to at LSU. He has not allowed a TD pass in two years. He can be versatile for the Tigers and return punts/kicks like Heisman finalist CB Tyrann Mathieu is known to do. A welcomed addition to the “DB University” as Mathieu likes to call his squad.
